I’m back…. and with the World’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookies!

I was sick all weekend with a nasty flu and Justin, being the wonderful guy he is, kept Colt entertained for a full two days. He did great with Colt but not so much with the house. I’m not going to complain though. I knew cleaning wasn’t one of his talents when I married him!

Needless to say, I had a lot of missed housework to make up for today. Colt was very sweet to assist me.

He also restacked my bowls. He does that once every couple of days. So thorough!

Oh and we had to play in the water today! We had a really hard rain on Sunday night, and when that happens water comes pouring out of the cave next to our house and floods the yard. I put some shorts and sandals on Colt and he had a blast!

Okay so here’s what you’ve all been waiting for… the best chocolate chip cookie recipe in the world! I made these for Justin today as a little “thank you” for being so sweet this weekend.
First how I got this recipe… In 2011, when the big tornado hit Alabama, we went down there with a group from our church to help with relief work. The wife in the family that hosted us was an amazing cook and baker. It seemed like she made hundreds of these cookies and they all got devoured. She graciously blessed me with the recipe. These cookies are so moist; when you take a bite they melt in your mouth. They don’t flatten out and get hard and crispy like so many other cookie recipes do. Next time you need to make a mouth watering chocolate chip cookie use this recipe. And remember… there’s never a better time then the present for cookies!

Stir in chocolate chips and nuts (if using). Or if you are lazy like me, quickly beat them in.

Now roll the lovely cookie dough into about an inch and a quarter sized balls. Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes.

Don’t over bake these! They should look like they need another minute in the oven when you pull them out. Golden and still soft in the middle.

Oh… these are so good! Don’t the pictures speak for themselves though? Enjoy!
